Fujitsu's NABERS rating of its data centre portfolio

Fujitsu Australia has become what is believed to be the first company in Australia to have its entire data centre portfolio rated through the NABERS system.

Across the portfolio, the centres averaged 3.75 stars, and the ratings have been published on the NABERS website. This represents energy efficiency 27 per cent higher than the market average, the company said, and equates to an estimated 27 gigawatt-hours of electricity saved annually, and 24 million kilograms of carbon emissions avoided.

The company is aiming for a 2020 target of a 4.5 star NABERS rating across the portfolio.

“The portfolio rating is just as important from an environmental leadership perspective as it is from a transparency one,” chief executive of Fujitsu Australia and New Zealand Mike Foster said.

“When it comes to energy efficiency claims regarding data centres, transparency is crucial. With the exponential increase in data centre energy and Australia being powered predominantly by fossil fuels, the industry needs more accountability for our environmental impacts.

“NABERS rating for data centres not only gives our customers credible assurance of our energy efficiency efforts but also provides us with a common language that works globally.”

Tom Grosskopf, director of the Metro Branch at the NSW Office of Environment and Heritage, said Fujitsu was a strong supporter of the NABERS Energy for data centres tool since it was launched in Australia and New Zealand.

“This achievement is another significant statement that marks them as leaders in this industry,” Mr Grosskopf said.

“All digital companies should be looking to follow Fujitsu’s lead if we’re to reach our national sustainability targets.”
